This THP is about 7 miles NE of Arcata, CA near the Highway 299 Coast Range summit at an elevation of 600 to 2,000 feet. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning a mostly clearcut tractor and cable logging operation in redwood, Douglas fir, grand fir, western hemlock and Monterey pine forests. The THP area drains into the Mad River which is listed as an impaired watershed for sediment, temperature and turbidity. There are landslide terrain sites in units B, C, D, E and F. Green Diamond Resource Company wants to yard and deck logs on a narrow strip of land between 2 class II (mid-sized) watercourses. Eleven road drainage sites are planned for work including rocking, dip construction, ditch cleaning and culvert repair/replacement. There are spotted owl nesting territories within .25 mi of unit F, and .5 mi of units A,B and E. More information is available on the THP Tracking Center website.
